Adsense on bottom of forum postings kila_m msg:1452792 2:31 pm on Jul 18, 2004 (gmt 0) Am I allowed to have adsense on the bottom of my forum on each conversation?
I had it like this when Adsense first came out.. and Google visted my site and told me it was against the T&Cs.
Have they changed on this policy as I see a lot of sites doing it?

Have you considered asking them? Swash msg:1452794 4:36 pm on Jul 18, 2004 (gmt 0)

Why not? I have been doing this since last year. Every thread page seems get very good targeted ads shortly after posting. AZEvil msg:1452796 6:11 pm on Jul 18, 2004 (gmt 0)
From what I have read in the TOS, you can have Adsense on forum pages except:
1. Registration Pages
2. Search Results Pages
I am running them on a forum and have not had any problems...other than a horrible CTR, but that's probably standard for advertisements on a forum.

If your forum has a redirect page (ie. you post and it redirects you to a "your post has been added, please wait and we will return you to the thread" page) you will need to make sure it is not on those pages either. kodaks msg:1452798 1:13 am on Jul 19, 2004 (gmt 0)
Thats what I do on my forums, and they haven't complained yet.
